Research Paper: Sampling-Based Clerical Review Methods in Probabilistic Linking, May 2011 (cat. no. 1351.0.55.034)
This research paper considers sampling-based clerical review methods in probabilistic linking. Probabilistic data linking aims to link records that are believed to belong to the same person from two different data sets. However, there are many record pairs that cannot be automatically assigned a status and are designated for clerical review. Clerical review is a time consuming and resource intensive stage of the data linking process requiring careful visual inspection and keyboard use. Acceptance sampling is proposed to dramatically reduce the amount of clerical inspection, and provide an accurate and reliable means of assessing and setting the most appropriate clerical review bounds.
